20 Gauge Ammo

The 20 gauge shotgun is a favorite of many shooters due its excellent handling and (in guns of similar weight) much lower felt recoil compared to the 12 gauge. 20 gauge ammo shotgun can be used for everything from hunting and trap shooting to self-defense. 20 gauge shotshells have a distinctive yellow hull to help prevent accidental (and dangerous) loading of shells into the wrong size shotgun.

A 20 gauge shotshell typically fires an ounce (give or take 1/8 oz.) of shot at 1,200 feet per second, with steel waterfowl loads typically moving faster. Buckshot loads in 20ga are typically for self-defense, though they may be used for hunting as well. Slugs make the 20 gauge a viable deer gun at 100 yards and beyond, while birdshot is used for target shooting and, of course, birds.

Some 20 gauge loads (particularly waterfowl ones) come in a 3" hull length that packs more shot or propellant into the shell; this produces more recoil, but allows the 20ga to close the power gap with its larger cousins without the need for another shotgun when needed.

At Widener's, you'll find cheap 20 gauge ammo for sale from the biggest names in ammo. Look for Federal, Fiocchi, Winchester and more in-stock at very competitive prices.

    These 3-inch shotshells from Federal Premium will bring a huge boost of power and capability to your appropriately chambered 20 gauge piece. Federal ammunition is manufactured in Minnesota using high-quality components that are manufactured in-house and thoroughly checked over for uniform shapes, sizes, and performance. Their ammunition has been trusted to service government contracts as well as to accompany professional competitors to the Olympic games. Their Vital-Shock line in particular calls for very specific parts and treatments to help guarantee excellent results on target.

    These include a crushable wad column which reduces felt-recoil and protects the 1-1/4 ounce load of #2 buckshot from deformation using a tall shot cup. This job is also performed by onboard buffering media and copper-plating which both help to keep the shot pellets perfectly round for tighter shot clouds and deeper penetration. As a result, shooters can use this ammunition for groundhogs, deer, hogs, and even home invaders. The entire arrangement is housed within a moisture-resistant hull with a brass head and powered by clean-burning propellant. Federal arms the shotshell with their own 209 primer for reliable ignition that won't leave mercury or other harmful chemicals behind in your favorite shotgun.
